    Has anyone got any recommendations for a plug in instrument to achieve an accordion / pipe organ sound similar to the main instrument in God Only Knows by Beach Boys? Thanks

    I've had pretty good luck with the EXS24 sample: factory/world/european/polka accordion.

    From the song you mentioned (I listened on Grooveshark.com) I would think you could get pretty close with the polka accordion and the right kind of reverb. Maybe some volume and mild pan automation to help the instrument sound more authentic?

    With accordion, sometimes I get better results playing only two notes of the chord instead of three or more.

    If you want an organic feel I'd strongly recommend using real time recorded volume automation on either an expression pedal or expression wheel
